There are several specs for audible/visual sensors.  IPMI, SAF-TE, SES to name just a few of the standards, plus a heck of a lot of vendor/product specific methods.

Nothing native in Windows to do any of these.  LINUX has the sensors pkg that covers IPMI/SMB.  Nothing native for AIX.     If you are running solaris, what shows up in /dev/es/ses*     In linux do a cat /proc/scsi/scsi and look for manufacturers for things like the enclosure, not Seagate.

That will be a good start to determine what you have.

You could always download and install the IPMI utilities.  It officially compiles for linux, windows, solaris, and freebsd.

You may be able to get it to work with hpux & aix, but that may require some editing.
